In-depth focus on PFAS policy and practice

In the US, state governments are taking legislative and regulatory action on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and advancing bills for bans or disclosures on this chemicals group. Pressure is also building from NGOs and consumers, with greater federal scrutiny and litigation around PFAS use emerging. Meanwhile Canada is taking its first steps towards their regulation.  

The extensive use of PFAS across a range of diverse sectors including textiles, electronics, cookware and food packaging makes their reduction or substitution an unprecedented challenge for the chemicals industry and their supply chains. 

In such a complex and fast-moving environment, it is vital to have the latest updates to stay ahead and remain compliant. Leading experts will review the latest regulatory, legal and scientific developments on PFAS, to help you gain clarity on the far-reaching implications at this essential one-day conference.
